Bathrooms are commonly divided by gender; this creates many issues that can be solved by providing bathrooms that are not divided by gender. Currently, the WPI campus lacks sufficient access to gender neutral bathrooms. The locations and characteristics of bathrooms on the WPI campus were collected, and a survey was taken of the WPI community about gender neutral bathrooms to determine how to accommodate people’s needs. Based on this information, a recommendation of immediate changes to improve access to gender neutral bathrooms was made to the Dean of Students and the Assistant Vice President of the Facilities Department at WPI. Information gathered over the course of this project will be valuable to future initiatives in creating further bathroom changes to benefit the WPI community.
